Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund: Preview

Wolfsburg form analysis

Die Wölfe began their 2023 Bundesliga campaign with a 1-1 away draw at Mainz on January 13th, taking an early lead through V. Černý before conceding to S. Widmer. On January 20th, Wolfsburg drew again, this time 1-1 away to Heidenheim – V. Černý scored before they allowed an own goal. Things stayed the same on January 27th as Wolfsburg drew 1-1 at home with FC Cologne, with K. Paredes canceling out F. Alidou’s opener.

On February 4th against Hoffenheim, Wolfsburg conceded early but fought back twice to draw 2-2 thanks to goals from L. Majer. However, on February 10th Wolfsburg lost 1-0 away to Union Berlin after allowing D. Doekhi’s goal. Overall, Wolfsburg have struggled to win games despite scoring in every match. Converting more draws into wins will be critical if they hope to make for a top table finish. Tighter defense and more clinical finishing could help Wolfsburg turn their form around in the coming weeks.

Borussia Dortmund form analysis

Borussia Dortmund began their 2024 Bundesliga campaign with a commanding 3-0 away win at Darmstadt on January 13th thanks to goals from J. Brandt, M. Reus and Y. Moukoko. Dortmund continued their strong start on January 20th, earning an emphatic 4-0 victory away to FC Cologne with D. Malen, N. Füllkrug and Y. Moukoko scored. On January 28th, Dortmund won 3-1 at home against Bochum to make it 3 wins from 3 matches.

However, their momentum was halted on February 3rd as Dortmund were held to a 0-0 away draw by Heidenheim. Looking to bounce back, on February 10th Dortmund returned to winning ways with a convincing 3-0 home victory over Freiburg courtesy of another D. Malen brace and a late N. Füllkrug goal. Overall, Dortmund had an excellent run recently, winning 4 of 5 fixtures since January. Maintaining their offensive potency and defensive solidity will be critical as Dortmund push to reach the top.

Wolfsburg vs Borussia Dortmund: Prediction

Dortmunds’ last five Bundesliga results on the road have seen a scoreline of just over two goals per game. A similar number can be seen in the last five results of the hosts. This is likely to result in a low scoring game this weekend.

The visitors are undefeated in their last five home matches in the league. Furthermore, they have lost just once on the road this season in league games. They are all but sure to take all points from a club that is yet to register a win in 2024.

Under 3 goals @ 1.95 odds.

Draw no bet: Borussia Dortmund @ 1.65 odds.
